Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Congestión de tráfico: corregir y ampliar nuestras carreteras, ¡y dejar de desviar mil millones de dólares al año de transporte existentes al fondo general! ¡Revoquemos el impuesto al gas! Fui autor de una legislación para destinar los dólares del transporte del presupuesto estatal para ampliar las carreteras.
  • Asequibilidad: California tiene algunos de los impuestos y aranceles más altos del país que perjudican a los californianos que trabajan arduamente. Los aranceles de registro de nuestros vehículos, los impuestos sobre la renta, los impuestos corporativos y las reglamentaciones comerciales, el impuesto a la gasolina y las tarifas de impacto de las viviendas se suman.
  • Vivienda: la reducción del alto costo de las reglamentaciones, los impuestos y los aranceles que se aplican a las viviendas nuevas (aranceles de entre $50 mil y $150 mil por unidad) para actualizar las reglas de demanda conforme a la Ley sobre la Calidad Ambiental de California (California Environmental Quality Act, CEQA) mientras se siguen cumpliendo los objetivos ambientales fomentará un mayor desarrollo orientado hacia el relleno y el tránsito.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (4)

What do you think the State should do to encourage affordable housing for all Californians?
Respuesta de Marie Waldron:
      Reducing the high cost of regulations, taxes and fees on development will go a long way to encourage more housing development at all levels.  Development and impact fees range from $50k to $150k per unit.  CEQA is a major cost of housing as many lawsuits, some anonymous and duplicative, cause delays and waste money.  Updating CEQA’s lawsuit rules while continuing to meet environmental objectives will encourage higher infill density and transit-oriented development.         Serving on the Assembly Local Government committee, with 14 years experience on the Escondido city council, we slashed development fees to among the lowest in the county.  The majority in the state legislature so readily exempt CEQA regulations for professional football or basketball stadiums yet oppose streamlining regulations for housing or water infrastructure.  This doesn't make sense.        In California, total fees can amount to anywhere from 6% to 18% and higher of the median price of a new home depending on location. There is no standardized system to estimate development fees causing unpredictability which can delay or block projects altogether.   There is a wide variation of type and amount of fees between cities. For example, one city may require new development to pay a park impact fee of $350 per single family home, while another's fee is $55,000 per single family home.      We must reduce the high costs to develop housing, including development and impact fees and the regulatory loopholes that add costs to the final price of a home.


According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Marie Waldron:

 My work as a local elected official, serving on the Escondido city council, has given me the experience to work with and represent all my constituents.  It is important to respect everyone you come in contact with and allow all voices to be heard, whether you agree with them or not.  Being respectful of others and differing opinions has been a huge issue in our nation.  Just because you don't agree with someone, doesn't mean you can't get along.  The idea of censuring individuals or shutting down events because of disagreements with the speaker is not what Freedom of Speech is about.   All ideas are valuable, people should be heard and need to be part of any civil discourse.   The problem with society today is the opportunity for civil discourse has been overthrown by radicals with a agenda to shut down speech or intimidate.   I have worked hard and successfully in local government and in the Assembly to listen to ideas, work with people of all political ideology and get things done for the people of my district and California.  

Climate changes, and the shifting between very wet weather and drought, worry Californians. What strategies would allow that your district to both satisfy its water needs and protect the environment? Please be specific.
Respuesta de Marie Waldron:
A reliable, sustainable, affordable water supply is critical to our arid, agricultural region.  As a member of the Rural Caucus in the State Assembly, I work to bring awareness of our region's issues to the forefront.  I have authored several bills to streamline regulations like CEQA to build reclaimed water pipelines through existing urbanized channels to farmland (Toilet to Tree program), to encourage increasing water storage by 25% in existing reservoirs and funding for water storage and desalinization plants.  Our families, businesses and farms need a reliable, affordable water supply.      I have authored two bills to bring reclaimed, recycled water to farms to bring usable irrigation water to groves and crops, create a sustainable supply of water, reduce the amount of water currently being sent to the ocean through the outfall from the reclaimation plant and open up capacity in the plant to clean more rainwater runoff that now goes into the ocean polluting it.  Incentivizing the use of reclaimed water will help the environment and create a sustainable water supply.       My bill to allow existing water reservoirs to increase capacity by 25% if needing to replace their outdated dam system will also bring more potable water to our region and save ratepayers money.
What programs or strategies would you suggest to meet the educational needs of the youngest and most poverty stricken Californians?
Respuesta de Marie Waldron:
       I support policies that ensure every student has access to a safe and healthy school, and ensure their education is designed to successfully prepare them for college, career tech or trade school. We need to work harder to provide and expand access to high quality education programs for historically disadvantaged students, by helping them 'break barriers" to learn job ready skills.  That is why I joint-authored AB 1111 to support career tech education for students with disabilities, previous incarceration, living in poverty or veterans and successfully received a $15 million budget to support it.        I serve on the State's Blue Ribbon Commitee for Early Childhood Education and am working on expanding opportunities for low income families to access quality education, pre-school and child care.  Early education can reap benefits throughout the student's life leading to a lifetime of learning and success in careers and beyond.         Local decisions best serve students, so reducing unfunded new state-mandated activities and simplifying existing programmatic duplicative reporting requirements is important, including alignment between state and federal reporting requirements. We need art, music and physical education in our schools
     Our students deserve the highest quality educators in their classroom, yet we have a teacher shortage.  We can protect Title II funding, extend the teacher probationary period from two to three years and expand teacher credential reciprocity with other states.       California needs to actively seek to secure qualified teachers in critical shortage areas like bilingual, special education, and STEM classes.  As a member of the Select Committee on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, we need special education reforms for accountability, local control, and funding for the growing number and increased severity of students identified with special needs. I have supported increased access to early intervention and protect the rights of students with disabilities at the national and state level.
